I've wanted to tour Henderson Swamp for several years. When a special tour arranged for photographers was offered, I booked my seat. This was a beautiful tour. The cypress and Spanish moss was plentiful for photos. Captain Tucker was an excellent guide and very intuitive to what a boat full of photographers wanted to see......

Have always wanted to go on an airboat swamp tour. This one wall all I expected and much, much more. Captain Tucker is an excellent guide who has a deep empathy with the swamp environment and wild life-especially the alligators. We went on a fascinating airboat powered by a 500 horsepower V8 engine!......

Absolutely loved this tour. So amazing and such a great experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was great with the alligators, and answered any and all questions we had. We would recommend this place to anybody! Also, the alligators heads they have back at their little store are the cheapest we could find ANYWHERE!........

On a quick trip to the Lafayette, LA area we decided to take an airboat tour. Our local contact made last minute reservations for us and promised that this would be an unforgettable trip. Our captain was pure Cajun, and experienced hunter and guide. We started off slow, working thru the cypress swamps, dotted with occasional duck blinds. Though early in the season we saw a few small gators as well as a plethora of birds and other wildlife......What a great experience!

We had so much fun on our tour that we didn't want it to end. The guide stops several places to provide information about the area and answers your questions. Also, he speaks French to a few gators. In return, the gators let him pet them. Amazing!. That's the closest we'll ever be to a live gator. We highly recommend this tour.....We even stopped in at Turtle's Bar and enjoyed a few.
